Terminal Time to me is reflective like wooden mirror. It makes you give an immediate response by applauding to answer a questionnaire; it plays on the prejudices that people bring to the media. Terminal Time is an interactive experience, simulating voice activity to get a result.
I feel the gallery is all interaction. I mean you get out of it what you put in it. The gallery is meant to make the viewer become fully engaged in each piece. The viewer has to act transparent of reflective for them to get the max out of each piece. The dark curtains and lighting made viewers have to be engaged. Giving them a sense that something new was coming. The trick with the lighting is giving a dark sense of fulfillment and then the neon lights taking you to a new experience. That’s the purpose of the gallery is the experience. The end of the book really goes into detail describing the layout of the facility that terminal is.
